Last year on this date the garden was already quite green and growing due to our unseasonably warm temperatures (see picture above). Last year the high temperature for the first day of spring in Madison set a record at 81 degrees F. Frankly it was more than a little disconcerting to have it so hot so early in the season, but I am definitely no happier with today's predicted high of 19! And the forecast shows a possible two more inches of snow on Monday. Definitely very tired of winter and dreaming about seeing my moss garden again.
This was the scene on our side of town yesterday. Wind seems to be gone this morning and it looks like a sunny day at least. Photo by MPKing/Wisconsin State Journal.
